Lip augmentation has been on the rise in the West thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, but, in Korea lip fillers weren’t as popular as other procedures such as blepharoplasty (double eyelid surgery), rhinoplasty, and skin whitening (done to achieve the desired Korean beauty standards).
Although lately, with Instagram celebrities being on the rise, it’s easy to notice how the use of lip fillers to enhance beauty has been increasing dramatically in young people, and how there is one shape of lips in particular Koreans are choosing to get.
There’s allegedly a good and a bad side for people who choose to do this lip augmentation:
- The good side: Your lips will look plump wrinkle-free, like dolls’ lips.
- The bad side: It will feel like you have Haribo jellies in your lips and even if you don’t like them the fillers won’t disappear completely over time.
Some of the lips a big amount of Instagram celebrities have, portray the same kind of lip shape.
The lips of these Instagrammers end up looking similar to idols with naturally plump lips like BTS’s Jin, Sulli and Girls’ Generation’s Sunny.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are non-invasible and non-surgical lip enhancement options that will last for 4 to 12 months, and, when done right, will leave lips looking full but natural.
